OverviewA Canadian medical cannabis revolution

Established in 2017, GlassHouse Botanics is a privately owned and operated medicinal cannabis producer with its greenhouse located in Canada and processing and sales located in Malta. The first 43,000 sq ft of its planned 520,000 sq ft greenhouse is substantially complete. With receipt of its Health Canada cultivation license and GMP certification forthcoming it is soon open for business!

Past

One of our co-founders, Dan Tauvette, started researching the benefits of cannabis and the potential market for the plant in the mid-2010s. The more he researched it, the greater his certainty that it’s medicinal benefits could be a reality. His research brought him to the realization that so many people could benefit from the plant- from cancer patients to people with pain, stress and anxiety.

The main motivation for our other founder, Jeff Black comes from his desire to make a difference in the lives of people suffering from a number of ailments and conditions. This passion came from the suffering he watched his young daughter, Lael, go through for 3 ½ years. Lael was 6 years old when she was diagnosed with stage four Rhabdomyosarcoma – a very rare childhood cancer. Forty weeks of chemotherapy was the only treatment available. The pain and suffering a 6-year-old must go through each day, week and month is something no child should ever have to endure, and no parent should ever have to helplessly standby and watch. The anti-nausea and pain medication prescribed did very little if anything to stop the daily suffering. When the chemo stopped working Lael went through various other drug trials which eventually also failed to stop or slow the cancer. In 2008, when she was just 10 years of age, receiving radiation and morphine to control the pain, she passed away. In those last months of her life she suffered severe pain as the cancer grew in different areas of her little body. No palliative treatments were ever very effective in reducing her pain except for morphine, which, due to the level required, really didn’t allow her to have much of a life at all. With more, targeted research and development, cannabis may become far more effective in reducing nausea in cancer patients or for pain reduction and management with far less harmful side effects than that of morphine or other addictive opioids that are commonly prescribed. Jeff’s hope is that Cannabis can some day reduce some of the suffering people like Lael endure every day.

Present

Phase 1 of our 520,000 sq. ft greenhouse is in the last stages of licensing with Health Canada. We have submitted our Attestation of Readiness and Evidence Package.

Our processing and sales operation in Malta is well underway. We are building our teams at both facilities and actively engaging European academia to conduct research and development activities. We expect our first batch of medicinal cannabis products will be available to the Canadian and European markets in late Summer of 2019.
